There’s a relatively new app out there called Woebot (available for Android and Apple). It’s an artificial intelligence chatbot that delivers cognitive behavioral therapy or CBT, for anxiety, depression, among other things… and it’s impressive just for the AI experience alone! Don’t settle for my opinion on that, though. Look at how two million messages are sent to it each week. Also, if you want to have an idea of how engaging it is, listen from about the 9:30 mark in the podcast below. The podcast had to act it out in the role of the bartender because the chatbot is just text right now. Finally, maybe just download it and give it a try!

There’s a good reason why I don’t donate to most charities. I don’t approve of how they spend some, if not a good portion, of they money they receive for donations. Exorbitant salaries, luxurious overhead and trips, celebration parties among other parties, etc. You might call me judgmental for it, and I’d come back at you with You’re damn right, I am! And count yourself lucky if I don’t throw some expletives at you to adequately describe how I feel.
